I use tons. I kinda collect gimmicked decks.

The two I use most are -

Marked Cards [as regular deck I use it's penguins]
Mental Photography.

I also however have and use on occasion -

Stripper
In Flight [Regal's Deck haven't used it yet]
Svengali
Mastermind
In a Flash [Top 3 card effects I do]
Pop Eyed Popper
Brainwave
Invisible
Split Deck [haven't used it yet]

Then I use gimmicks in cards. I love MacDonald's Aces so I use DF.

I really need to get better at ringing in decks... I think that's my biggest holdup to some of the really fun stuff sitting on my shelf.

It's a one-off effect and you'd need to switch out, but performing 52 to 1 feels like actual magic. Really liking that one lately.

I really don't like to use gaffed decks for the most part. I will always have a marked deck in play. Which I use all the time. So there is always an advantage there.. and of course the invisible deck which is a a great effect in itself.. but also a GREAT out if needed.

Rough and smooth Svengali...
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

Isn't that called a Mirage Deck?

For me I use a marked deck or invisible deck. I performed possible impossible once and now it sits in collection not being used. All other gaffes decks have sat in a drawer and I never perform with them, just look at them or play with them occasionally.

I'm mainly a kids show performer, but do love to use a few different gaffed decks when having fun with older kids or adults. I'm OK at some sleights but definitely no expert.

1. Svengali
2. Kidz Cards
3. Any Card (Killer deck)
4. Marked Deck by Sean Taylor
5. Mene Tekel
6. Invisible

Being a hobbyist, I can not bring myself to carrying more than one deck of cards, if I even decide to take a deck with me. I do have a gimmicked card in my deck, would you consider that a gimmicked deck?
I do have gimmicked decks though none I felt were worthwhile in replacing the deck I do take with me.

I use an Invisible Deck in my stand-up show. For strolling, I use a deck that's arranged for a kicker, when performing Gemini Twins.
